  1. Top 5 tbh, best Salford squad I have seen in many years, quality and depth.
  2. Should go well if he can recapture is form from 2 years ago, on paper Salford have a very strong squad now, Taylor,Lussick, Watkins, Lolohea, Brown, Livett, Burgess, Sarginson etc, can see them definitely up there challenging again.
  3. Salfords new recruit, versatile player but can he play hooker? looks like an area where Salford should have strengthened, overall though their squad is looking really good,
  4. Agreed, the Grand Final squad were very reliant on Hastings who pulled up trees for Salford that season, current squad looks fantastic on paper, Watkins and Sarginson international class centres, Inu a points machine, while Taylor and Lussick are definitely upgrades on Dudson and Yates, Salford look a shoe in for top 4.
  5. looking in great shape ahead of the new season, plenty of pace, power, strength and experience right throughout the squad, plenty of depth too outside an already formidable looking 17 if you look at the likes of Sio, Williams, Kear, Mccarthy, Atkin, Luckley, Lannon, Roberts etc
  6. I believe so, yes, permanent deal.
  7. SKS, not sure how you formulate your "Impartial" opinions? unless you are in possession of a super league coaching badge....
  8. Salfords pack even more powerful with the arrival of Darcy Lussick. Escare, Burgess, Watkins, Sarginson, Inu, Lolohea, Brown,Mossop, Ackers, Lussick, Livett, Ikahihifo, Taylor, Pauli Pauli, Wells, Greenwood, Costello. Thats a very competitive looking 17 in anyones book.
  9. Mossop, Taylor, Pauli Pauli, Ikahihifo, Livett, would not say Salford have a weak pack, the real problem if no more quality additions up front is probably strength in depth.
  10. Confirmed on a 2 year deal for Salford, big name signing, undoubted quality, 1 or 2 more solid acquisitions and Salford should go well.
  11. Escare, Burgess, Watkins, Sarginson, Inu, Lolohea, brown, Mossop, Ackers, Yates, Livett, Ikahifo, Mccarthy, Pauli, Greenwood, Burke, Costello
  12. Livett looks a shrewd signing for Salford, think they will bring in another forward and they should be set for next season and looking good.
  13. On paper at least, Salford have one of the best set of backs in the league, Escare, Watkins, Sarginson, Sio, Lolohea, adding Burgess to the mix its a very dangerous side, add some quality to the pack and its got to be a top 5 team.
  14. Suspect amongst other things Watson may have been somewhat frustrated at Salford by the 3 win deduction which ended theyre play off hopes? Having said that, his stock has never been higher and probably a good time for him to personally cash in with a very big pay rise elsewhere at a club on a sound footing.
  15. Seems like the RFL like to bully the smaller clubs, not sure the likes of Saints, Wigan would be hauled over the coals as severely.
  16. Salford have been a breath of fresh air to the league in all honesty last year or so, whats probably more frustrating for the club has a whole at the moment though is no fans being allowed in, they would be bringing in 5000+ easily just now.
  17. Salford are far better than what they served up tonight, having said that, their excuses are totally credible, the team was ravaged and dead on its feet, clear for all to see.
  18. After the Koukash debacle there is a solid set up behind the scenes at Salford ie Watson, Blease, Rowley and the lifelong fan turned director King. Tbh Salford have not really missed Hastings as much as many thought they would do and again thats down to the acumen of the coaches, they are really quite an enterprising team, notice the speed of the counter attack against Leeds which led to the Williams try as an example, I think they will keep Watson for another season or two, maybe longer if they can consistently compete, as for next year, Escare and the winger from Wigan are onboard, they have
  19. Totally agree, play the fringe players, its all in to land some silverware for Solly.
  20. Yeh I get that, obviously the virus has a map....
  21. A GF appearance and now Wembley says Salford are actually a very well run club with an astute coach and director (Watson/Blease), their team is full of talented individuals such as Inu, Watkins, Lolohea etc and its an absolute shame about the current climate as they would probably be averaging 5000+ in attendances just now.
  22. Fans allowed in at the tennis in Paris, granted only a few, yet if thats permitted at such a small venue then why not at Wembley? Many things just do not add up about all this.
  23. Outstanding signing by Salford if Watkins can hit the heights of previous years, every chance he will do so under Watson, and that backline of Escare, Sarginson, Sio, Lolohea etc looks extremely dangerous with the addition of Watkins.
